Burma's Butt-Kickin' Buddhists

As a student of Buddhism, it is with great pride that I see the Buddhist monks leading the pro-democracy charge in Burma.

I also like the fact that these are not Zenned-out Buddhists but Buddhists who are taking peaceful action as they fight tyranny. Just be mindful about it, guys, and watch out for the billy clubs.

I too am so proud of the Burma sangha.

I have a question for you though. What do you mean by saying, "Zenned-out Buddhists?"

What do you mean by "zenned-out Buddhists?" I follow Zen and we've participated in many peaceful actions, including supporting of the monks involved in the pro-democracy movement in Burma.
